Godfrey Certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council

Publish date: Jun 27, 2024

Godfrey, a full-service B2B marketing communications agency that specializes in industrial marketing, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise Center (WBEC) East, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC Certification is the gold standard for women-owned business certification in the United States.

“We are excited for Godfrey to be recognized as a women-owned business by WBENC,” said Stacy Whisel, president of Godfrey. “This certification supports our clients’ diversity goals, and we are fortunate to work with companies that prioritize inclusive business practices. We look forward to the opportunities being a part of the WBENC network will bring.”

The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the WBEC East is a meticulous process, including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women, and that the business has appropriate structure and strategic business planning and implementation in place.

By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs, which in turn empowers women as leaders and brings about a more diverse, balanced and sustainable economy.

WBENC Certification, combined with professional development and engagement in the WBENC network, provides unsurpassed opportunities year-round, both virtually and in-person, for women-owned businesses to grow and expand their business and innovation through events, programming and connections with major corporations and other WBEs.
